Il Ramaiolo in Italian (especially in Tuscany) means “The Copper Ladle“.

Traditionally the most important room of an house in Tuscany is the kitchen, where all the components of the family spent the time telling stories around a big table wrapped in a cloud of tastes and flavours. The kitchen is also the place where our guests and friends are welcomed in front of a regenerating meal and an amiable glass of wine. We choose to be represented by a copper ladle because it represent the traditional hospitality of our culture and the familiar atmosphere that we want to transmit to our guests.

In the B&B there are two comfortable guest rooms with 1 king size bed and private bathroom and one apartment to accommodate up to 4 people with kitchen. All the accommodation are equipped with high-speed wi-fi internet connection, in the shared area the guests has a reading room, a living room and a garden. The B&B offer guests a sophisticated and relaxing atmosphere whether travelling for business or pleasure.

The strategic location makes the B&B Il Ramaiolo a unique place for tourists that want to visit the main cities of Tuscany discovering at the same time the wonders of the countryside. The B&B is located in Santa Maria a Monte an important historical outpost for its medieval hilltop location, that has long been disputed between Florence, Lucca and Pisa. The centre has a unique urban structure: the houses and buildings all overlook the road that follows a spiral path. The main cities of Pisa, Florence, Lucca, Livorno and Siena are easily connected by an extraordinary road network that let the tourist plan a complete tour of each of the cities. In the neighbourhood there are some of the most interesting town such as San Miniato, Pontedera, Buti and Montopoli where to find local slow-food producer, cellars and wine shops. Don’t forget that we are also in one of the most active fashion district where some of the most important made in Italy brands have their own factories and outlets.

After a good night’s sleep, start your day with a rich breakfast in our living room made using local and seasonal products and served with a cup of the best Italian cappuccino or espresso.
